This is the first Vespa that gives us the myth. This succes is
due to it's low price, and it's small consommation of fuel: 3
litres/100 km, for a top speed of 75 km/h and cruising of 50
km/h. On this first model, it was equiped with an
external drive shaft between the rear wheel and the motor.
Front fork use a drag type wheel with the axle and shock absorber slightly aft of the fork. It's the same thing used on landing gears of many aircraft.
